Gluten Free Vegan Oaty Bean and Lentil Sausage Rolls

Sometimes I get ridiculous orders from my wheat-avoiding other half for veganised gluten-defying favourites. He’s a total sucker for spicy ‘(fake) meaty’ sausage rolls. I, on the other hand, have never been a massive fan of sosmix or meaty-textured foods. It’s not that I don’t like them now and again; I can just take or…

Bubbly Vegan Chocolate Orange Mousse Recipe

Good grief this is something I never thought I’d have: Vegan Chocolate Orange Mousse – for actual reals! As a kid I’d look longingly at gelatine-laden chocolate mousse just wishing that I could have a nice vegetarian version! The light bubbly-textured chocolate looked so good aside from the obviously horrendous,¬†stomach churning bone-derived ingredients! As I…

Dorset Camping – Vegan BBQ and Badass Big Breakfast

Hi! It was so sunny¬†on Saturday that after actually braving the outdoors for a morning run (thought I’d get that lil’ brag in there), we decided to stuff some camping stuff and a cool bag in the car and go camp! I’m a huge fan of The Hive beach at Burton Bradstock (which I’ve mentioned…

Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation

I’m so excited I couldn’t wait to write this one! So, I was browsing on FeelUnique.com the other day and discovered that if you type ‘Vegan’ in the search bar, you get a LOT of results. Intrigued, I pressed on and came across this mineral foundation by Lily Lolo, a company which, whilst not completely…

(Vegan) Summer-Ready with Superdrug

It’s not uncommon for me to talk about the wonder that is Superdrug on here – did you notice?! The sun has been out this weekend so I decided it was probably time I tried to make myself presentable, including making my legs non-dangerous to view with the naked eye. For a while I have…

Raw Chocolate and Walnut Energy Brownies

Hi! As a vegan, it can be a bit difficult to find easy things to take for packed lunches. One thing I do enjoy and that aren’t too bad are Nakd bars but at 70p-ish a pop, they aren’t cheap! What I have discovered is that a similar (and even tastier) version is ridiculously easy…

Vegan Raspberry Jaffa Cakes

Ooooooooooooh! As a kid I discovered raspberry ‘jaffa’-cakes whilst on holiday in Spain. I’m not gonna lie, they were a life-changer! Now I pounce on every imported ‘jaffa’ cake style biscuit I spot in supermarkets, wishing that just once I might find an egg-free variety with no luck. Well, yesterday enough was enough. I had…

Creamy Cashew, Roasted Red Pepper and Butternut Squash Ravioli

Hello! Yesterday was a very chilled one and I had some time to spare to do one of my favourite things – make pasta! I don’t often get to do this nowadays as it’s a little time consuming but so worth it! I was always under the impression that homemade fresh pasta would need egg…

What’s in My (Vegan) Bathroom – Cruelty Free Pretty-Makers!

Hello! Yeah sorry about that…! Asking if beauty products are vegan can be a pain in the arse. The question is normally met with a mixture of confusion and amusement “Are you going to eat it?” is the usual response! Although I was bought up vegetarian and have never eaten meat, the transition to fully…

Best Vegan Cheese Post #1 – Violife

Hi! As a member of some different vegan groups on Facebook and elsewhere, a question I commonly stumble upon is: ‘What is the best vegan cheese available in the UK?’. When I turned vegan 7 years ago, I, perhaps not uniquely, thought that cheese would be the hardest thing to give up. I searched for…
